Where Harry Mourns What Was and Nurtures What Is
Size: 10" x 23 1/2"
This is an unframed print and an original etching, aquatint and watercolour.
Harry was a local science teacher and botanist who lived on a large natural property. I loved to walk with him as he described and mourned over the stumps of century trees cut well before his time and the seedlings and offspring from those trees, which he nurtured. Sometimes when we walked late into the evening, his descriptions and knowledge would almost create a magical glow and bring the forest to life.
The etchings displayed on this site are all created by me in my Millbrook, Ontario studio.
Each etching plate is hand inked, wiped, and printed on Arches Cover 270 gsm acid-free 100% rag etching paper using my manual Praga etching press.
The etching inks used are from Graphic Chemical & Ink Co. in Chicago and from Charbonnel Inks in France.
All of my prints are limited editions.
Unframed etchings can be sent flat (smaller images) or gently rolled in sturdy mailing tubes that ensure they arrive in good condition.
